İ. Oğuz Uçal 1

1 Kılıç Su Ürünleri A.Ş., Türkevleri köyü, 48277, Milas, Muğla Viewed : 3751 - Downloaded : 3607 Gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) and sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) are the marine fish species, which have characterized the development of marine aquaculture basin in the last two decades in Turkey. The substantial increase in production levels of these two high value species has been possible thanks to the progressive improvement in the technologies involved in the production of fry in hatcheries. As a result of this technological progress more than one hundred hatcheries have been built in the Mediterranean basin, working on these and other similar species. At present the farmed production of these two species that is derived from hatchery produced fry is greater than the supply coming from the wild. Keywords : sea bream, Sparus aurata, fry
